Re: What software/methods do you use to edit/run your code?

Tenoch, that tip is very useful. I didn't realize that it was so simple to change the way the "execute" command works in Geany. It means I don't have to switch to a terminal every time I want to run my game!

Re: Debugging with LOVE

I'm on Ubuntu, so I don't know how it transfers but I always run my love games through a terminal. I use the print method somewhere in my code and it writes the info to the terminal.

Code: Select all

a = "example"
print(a)

Re: More OOP in Lua/Love

I've been using this implementation for my game and it works perfectly. It's very compact and very easy to use. Thanks for the link. The top part of this article shows how to do the same thing I was trying to do. I think I've got it figured out. It looks like it was a simple syntax error. I had: se...

Re: running LOVE games in Ubuntu

I had the same problem. You need to tell love to open the folder (not the file) of your project. I do it this way
1. Open terminal
2. Type "love "
3. Drag my project folder onto the terminal
4. Press "Enter" on my keyboard!
